One segment of the Everio manual tries to explain how to delete recorded data – and, as a last resort, even suggests smashing a storage card to dispose of personal data. When the drive becomes full, stored footage will need transfer to computer or deletion. Would you buy this? A 10x optical zoom gives the MC a slightly limited range. While we do anticipate that veteran digital video camera enthusiasts might find this new grip irritating, it poses no problems at all for the average user. There’s also separate SD MemoryCard slot available. There are some rather straightforward benefits of hard disk recording, such as immediate playback no more waiting for tapes to unwind.
